Hardware, Embedded Systems When Psystar announced it Rebel EFI package, the company was quickly accused of simply taking open source code, repackaging it, and selling it for USD 50. While selling open source code is not a problem, not making the source code available if the license demands it is. Netkas, famous OSX86 hacker, and a Russian site are now claiming they have found the smoking gun.

if you did a bit of research you would find out all those drivers are actually free and patched up from the community anyways that psystar are just reusing.


I know. I tried them too (I have quite the experience installing Mac OS X on a non-Apple labelled computer), but they didn't work well. On top of that, Psystar's DUB (whoever's sources it may be built on) did boot my machine - Chameleon does not.

Weird stuff, but I'm too lazy and too short on time to figure it all out.
